tyntec Launches tt.One to Help Businesses Integrate Mobile With Voice and SMS for Popular OTT Apps and Services
(Marketwire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 05/02/12 --
tyntec, a German-based mobile interaction specialist, today announced the North American launch of tt.One, an infrastructure solution that gives businesses the power to integrate telco services such as voice, SMS and mobile numbers into online services, applications, social networks and more. tt.One is a carrier-class solution that virtualizes the core mobile communications capabilities associated with a mobile phone -- voice, SMS and mobile numbers -- and puts them into the cloud. From there, tt.One provides ubiquitous IP-compatible, globally-reachable, virtual mobile numbers that enable the two-way transmission of voice and SMS in multiple countries -- a critical requirement for U.S. and Canadian companies expanding their services into Europe.
According to Portio Research, traffic from over-the-top (OTT) Internet companies grew to 3.5 trillion messages in 2011. This rapid adoption presents an untapped opportunity among carriers and OTT Internet companies to unite and offer services on a single mobile number. Mobile telecom operators are facing competitive pressure from OTT alternatives such as Facebook, Skype, Google, and others. At the same time, Internet companies looking to integrate mobile services face technical and structural complexities and regional-specific regulatory requirements.
tt.One simplifies the complexities involved in integrating telecom services into a Web environment by seamlessly bridging the Internet and telecom worlds. Internet companies and mobile operators can scale their services globally with tyntec's patented technology. tyntec's deep understanding of global network and operator infrastructures eliminates the complexity of expanding into new markets such as Europe since tyntec manages all of the technical, regulatory and administrative details associated with telecom services.
By virtualizing all of the core mobile communications capabilities into the cloud, tt.One provides the highest level of portability -- eliminating the need for a SIM card for additional services. For example, Internet companies can provide mobile numbers to their users, enabling them to exchange SMS and voice calls -- as well as making any device, such as an iPad, a mobile phone in WiFi areas.
tt.One has many potential use cases in Web 2.0, applications and social media, as well as in the enterprise sector. The solution can be used for free/low cost texting & calling apps; one number services, which provide a cloud-based interface telephony service for consumers, where they can aggregate their various telephone accounts (mobile, landline, work, VoIP etc) under a single, virtual number; and anonymous voice chat for online dating and social networking, which provides users with temporary virtual phone numbers to place calls without revealing their actual number.
tyntec helps U.S. SMS Provider Pinger Expand into Europe
Pinger, a global communications service that makes SMS and calling free on iOS, Android and the Web, marked its expansion into Europe by deploying tt.One in Germany to power its free device and carrier-independent services. The seventh largest carrier in the U.S. by SMS volume, the company's apps are installed in 21 percent of iOS devices, putting Pinger among the top five most installed apps on iOS, according to comScore. tt.One powers the service by assigning Pinger users with unique mobile phone numbers and processing all incoming and outgoing messages.
"tyntec's tt.One platform enabled Pinger to enter the European market with our communications services quickly and efficiently by providing regional phone numbers and an on-ramp to the local communication networks," said Greg Woock, CEO of Pinger. "tyntec's deep understanding of the unique infrastructure requirements made the integration painless and allowed us to quickly scale our launch."
"Consumers are seeking new and innovative ways to communicate through their online services, apps and social networks, but historically service providers and Internet companies have struggled with Internet telephony given the vast array of devices, global service providers, regional infrastructure, and proprietary formats and standards," said Michael Kowalzik, CEO of tyntec. "tt.One is about simplicity, making it easy for any North American company to enter the European market by integrating telecoms services in the cloud, and capitalizing on the growing market shift toward Internet telephony services despite the disparate platforms and devices."
